APPEAL FOR SUPPORT OF OUR SEMINARIANS.


On the Synodal Process in Germany and the Synod for the Amazon by Cardinal Gerhard Müller.


Support for seminarians: as announced, Shawn Murphy and Hung Nguyen have been accepted as seminarians for the Institute of the Good Shepherd, and will be leaving for France in late August or early September to continue their studies for the priesthood at the Institute’s seminary in Courtalain (in the Diocese of Chartres). We are asking Parishioners to be generous in their support for the seminarians’ training. The Institute is relatively newly established (2006), and so has few financial resources. A dedicated fund for the support of our seminarians at the Institute of the Good Shepherd has been established, and we ask you to consider now what you can give. Both single donations and regular planned giving will be welcome. Details are available online on the Parish website, and in the vestibule.

Tim Garvey, a parishioner and regular Altar server, has successfully applied to enter Notre Dame Priory in Tasmania. Tim will enter the monastery on 6th September. Please keep him in your prayers. We in turn are grateful for the prayers of the monks. For more information on the monastery, including how you can provide support, visit https://www.notredamemonastery.org

Visit of the pilgrim statue of Our Lady of Fatima: the pilgrim statue of Our Lady of Fatima will be at St Aloysius’ until this Friday, 23rd August. We will renew the consecration of the Newman Parish to the Immaculate Heart of Mary after each Mass today, and conclude Our Lady’s visit with Sung Mass at 7 pm this Thursday, 22nd August, the feast of the Immaculate Heart. During the days of the visit, Parishioners are invited to pray the rosary at the temporary shrine of Our Lady after each weekday Mass (this will replace Eucharistic Exposition for the week).

Church cleaning day – Saturday, 31st August: assistance is requested from 11 am. Volunteers will be provided with a light luncheon.

Annual Life Dinner: the Australian Family Association invites you to “Support Mothers and Babies” by attending the 10th annual LIFE DINNER, celebrating life and all that is good and beautiful. Young practising midwife, Therese Hungerford-Morgan will launch her simple but powerful campaign to begin to re-establish a culture of life in our state of Victoria. You are cordially invited to come and hear what she has in mind: Saturday 24th August, 6.30pm for 7.00pm start, Aurora Receptions, 149 Donald St, East Brunswick. Registration forms are in the church porch or register online at www.family.org.au.

Please continue to pray for the success of the Newman Academy’s application for registration to commence in 2020, and for our continuing preparations. Applications for enrolment for Prep to Year 6 are welcome: https://newmanacademy.org.au

Can you help? The Parish Financial Committee has a variety of significant parish projects currently being planned, and we are seeking advice from suitably qualified parishioners in the fields of law, insurance, finance, trades etc. If you can assist, it would be greatly appreciated! Please contact: Chris Tyrrell (ph. 0417 017 817 ) or Trish (ph. 9532 7922 ). Many thanks.
